Investigating Undergraduate Students Ability in Solving Calculus Problems Using Microsoft Maths Solver Application
Keywords:Calculus,, Microsoft Math Solver, Understanding,, Modern Technology
This research work investigated the ability of 100 level undergraduate students in Novena University Ogume, Delta State. Two hundred (200) students from four departments were selected using the stratified random sampling techniques. Frequency counts and percentages were used to obtain a total picture of student ability towards calculus. Also, a student’s t-test was used to check whether there was a significant difference between the means. The observed difference between the mean is significant at the .01 level. Results of the research showed that the use of Microsoft Math Solver aided learners in understanding basic concepts in calculus, as compared with the traditional tutorial approach.
